Yes it's Dover but can you identify the ferries?

The one on the left looks like a Townsend Thoresen ferry maybe the Pride of Zeebruge.

At berth 4, Princesse Marie Christine, after jumbo-ization, and after RMT's defection to TT from Sealink.

At berth 2 is the TT Boulogne vessel, which for some reason loaded from the bows at Dover.

I agree with Fred on PMC. I think the vessel at berth 2 is FE 2 or FE3. They'd both look the same from this angle. Not sure about the ro-ro frieghter at the right. European something or other.

Don't think it can be FE II or FE III, They left the TT Fleet before TT took on the Ostende services in 85. Maybe FE IV? (Or V or VIII)

I thought it looked a tad small for the IV through VIII, but this is pre jumbo-ising if it is, so you may well be right.

Morning All,

Free Enterprise V or Free Enterprise 1V. The date taken would have between 1986 and 1987, both the V and 1V replaced the ex P&O Normandy Ferries, NF Tiger and Panther in 1986 after the takeover of the company by Townsends in Jan 1985.

The reason for always loading bow up in number two at Dover was if I remember correctly due to the fact that the Tiger Panther, Lion, unlike the V & 1V all had a very large cow catcher on the bow which allowed them to sit snugly bow up in the old number 13 berth (the ports original car ramp) at Boulogne return stern first into Dover.

However for some reason the FE class could go bow up in Boulogne's two other newer berths nearer the town. In fact Townsends had run an unsuccesful service for a short period some years previous to Boulogne using berth 15.

Going bow up in Dover was good for me, as on the NF Tiger as Bosun, while the vessel was turning in the outer harbour I had to be down aft on the cardeck to unlock and raise the stern door, then rush along the vehicle deck and get up onto the foc'sle for tying up the vessel. On the V going into number 2 it was a doddle being up on the focsle already, we used to stop a short distance off the berth and the bow visor would be raised.

Best Regards

Yuge
